Today, Hamilton’s DEAD TIRED drop two ferocious singles: “Domestic” and “New World Pigs” from their newly announced record Satan Will Follow You Home. Along with the new tracks, the band has released a video for “Domestic,” directed by Andrew Friessen. Watch below.
The self-produced album features a total of 10 unrelenting new tracks, and is available July 8 via New Damage Records.
Physical pre-orders for the record include two vinyl variants of the LP and a t-shirt. An exclusive 7″ featuring two B-side tracks — “TV Tears” and “Stars Burn Out,” will also be available to pre-order.
Dead Tired is fronted by Alexisonfire vocalist George Pettit, who also steps into the role of chief lyricist. “‘Domestic’ was based around a riff that Franz had for quite some time,” says Pettit. “Then we started jamming to it as a band and Marco added some thicker chords, and it kinda shaped into the song it became.”
“We as a band had no idea what it would sound like with vocals,” chimes in Franz Stefanik. “I remember when we sent the track to George he said ‘This is something special.” George kept on saying we can take it in a different direction if we didn’t like where he was going with it, but being the band we are, we’re always open to change and not sticking to a formula. The record has a lot of ups and downs and different moods and vibes.”
Through all the different moods, one thing doesn’t change: “Domestic” doesn’t take its foot off the gas. Adds Stefanik, “Like all Dead Tired songs, this song is best received at absolute max crushing volume.”
Dead Tired were notably featured in an episode of the wildly popular, anti-superhero series The Boys. The group can be seen performing at Toronto’s Lee’s Palace on the fifth episode of season two, titled “We Gotta Go Now.” More information including tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
